Bada Boom!

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of  Aguila Dorado (Sawyer) which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using the PTU matching kit, Sawyer, by Pudn Scraps.  

Font of choice, I am using Stella

Grunge mask of your choice

Plugins: No outside plugins
I do use Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow on all my copyrights/credits layers
I do this because some forums will make a .png tag show up with a black background and then your
copyright doesn't show. 

Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.

Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.

Let's get started!

Open your template, shift D to duplicate and close the original
Delete the following layers

Fill the layers with papers, to do this make sure the layer you want to fill has been clicked on in your layer palette. 
Click inside the shape with your magic wand, selections, modify, invert, open your paper, copy and paste as a new layer, 
click delete on your keyboard.
Delete the original template layer

Some layers, like the frames, you may just want to flood fill with a color from your kit. To do this, click on the layer in your layer palette, add another raster layer above it,
click inside the shape with your magic wand, and flood fill it with your color
Delete the original template layer

layer 1 use paper
layer 2 use paper 3
layer 3 use paper 8
layer 4 use paper 3
layer 5 use paper 8
layer 6 use paper 7
layer 7 use paper 8
layer 8 use paper 12
layer 9 use paper 8
layer 10 leave as is
layer 11 use paper 9
layer 12 use paper 10
layer 13 use paper 10
layer 14 use paper 10
